To join:

This group was originally proposed on 2013-11-05
by Dominik Röttsches. The following people supported its
creation: 
      Dominik Röttsches
      Anssi Kostiainen
      Louay Bassbouss
      Jean-Charles Verdie
      Mark Finkle
  
--------------------
The group's goal is to define an API that allows web applications to use
secondary screens to display Web content.  Phones, tablets, laptops and
other devices support ways to attach additional display screens.  Common
methods include attaching through video ports or HDMI, or wirelessly
through Miracast, WiDi, or AirPlay. Screens can also be attached over a
network.  For many of these techniques the operating system hides how
the screen is attached and provides ways for applications to use the
screens.   Native apps on an operating system can easily use these
additional screens without having to know how they are attached to the
device.  The goal of this CG is to define simple APIs to request
displaying an HTML page on the second screen and some means for the
launching page on the first screen to communicate with and control the
second page, wherever it is rendered.  That API should hide the details
of the underlying connection technologies and use familiar, common web
technologies for messaging.  The charter for this CG can be found at:
